Alexandria fares well at sectional

The high school bowling sectional was as exciting as ever with surprises and nail biters. Congratulations to all of the teams and individuals on a great weekend.

Both of Alexandria’s teams will make a repeat appearance at regional.

After two team games, the Alexandria girls team took the lead and never looked back. Fighting it out for second place, Anderson led Noblesville for most of the day until the fifth and final baker game, with Noblesville steadily closing the gap on Anderson’s lead, Anderson held onto a one-pin lead. Noblesville came out strong and outscored Anderson for the second and final spot moving on to regional.

With a strong start that was only improved upon throughout the day, Alexandria was the No. 1 seed heading into the finals with Noblesville. After a head to head match-up for two games, Alexandria couldn’t quite finish the day off and fell short to a strong Noblesville team.

After a short disappointment, the positive of moving on to the next step was their focus.

The individual section of the tourney produced five of the eight girls advancing from this area.

Alexandria was the only school to have two qualifiers. Emily Young started out in the lead and finished as the No. 1 seed, while Mikaela Hiatt qualified as the fourth seed and in the final spot in the step ladder finals. MIkaela battled her way over the second and third seeds to the final match to face her teammate. Young defended her number one seed and claimed the title of sectional champ.

Also moving on to regional is Olivia Behrens of Anderson, Layna Chapman from Anderson Preparatory Academy and Danielle McCune of Madison-Grant.

In the boys singles event, Alexandria’s Mason Ward was the No. 1 seed heading into the step ladder final finals. Ward was at his finest over the weekend rolling two 300 games. One came in the singles event on Saturday and added to a 276 and 213 for a 789 series.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
